Celebrated NFT artist Beeple has inaugurated his very own digital art studio, Beeple Studios, to provide creators a platform to showcase their art and cultivate a community. The launch event on March 11 was supported by the prestigious auction house Christie's, where Beeple's "Everydays: The First 5,000 Days" NFT was sold for a staggering $69.3 million.
The launch event saw Beeple's live "everydays" performance, during which he created 50 Everyday "artifacts" and a piece of art titled "The Long Road." Upon completing each piece, hidden printers in the ceiling rained down artworks on the guests, with estimates putting the figure at around 900 printouts. Interestingly, each printout featured a yellow border and a "valuable red dot," indicating that it can be exchanged for an NFT that holders will receive in the future.
Although the studio is not open to the public at present, people can register for a chance to visit the art gallery. Beeple noted that they wanted to build a space where they could organize diverse artists' showcases and experimental community events. The studio will likely host a range of events, given the artist's long history of producing exceptional NFTs.
